Patricia Briggs
“Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.”
Patricia Briggs, Iron Kissed

Beth Revis
“Eldest thinks power is control, that the best way to be a leader is to force everyone into obedience. Holding Amy against me, I realize the simple truth is that power isn't control at all-power is strength, and giving that strength to others. A leader isn't someone who forces others to make him stronger; a leader is someone willing to give his strength to other so that they may have the strength to stand on their own.
This is what I've been looking for since the first day I was told that I was born to lead this ship. Leading Godspeed has nothing to do with being better than everyone else, with commanding and forcing and manipulating. Eldest isn't a leader. He's a tyrant.
A leader doesn't make pawns-he makes people.”
Beth Revis, Across the Universe

Thomas A. Edison
“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
Thomas A. Edison

Thomas A. Edison
“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
Thomas A. Edison

Stephen Chbosky
“I would die for you. But I won't live for you.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
